The New York Sun has a two
column editorial asserting the right
of Senator Corbett to be seated. It
takes the ground that the case is
stronger than the Mantle case; bui
even if it was not, the appointed
senator should be seated. The
article goes into precedents to sus
tain Mr. Corbett's right. Talk in
the senate grows more favorable to
A man aged. 90 years eloped with

About Road Taxes.
There is a large amount of road
taxes in Lincoln county that are
never collected. These taxes are
the property taxes. There is a
provision in the road laws that the
road supervisors shall require a
property tax, aside from the regular
$3 road tax, amounting to $1.50
for each thousand dollars worth of
property assessed for county pur
poses the year previous. This tax
is collectible in the same manner
that the other road taxes are col
lected. This provision of the law
htis been practically a deexd letter in
this county, in most districts no
efforts having been made to collect
them. By reason of this the road
districts in the county suffer a severe
loss. Had this been enforced last
year, the roalroad company alone
would have paid more than $100
road tax into thz districts through
which it runs. Probably no less
than $1,000 were lost to the various
districts in the county last year by
reason of the non-collection of this
In order to ascertain the amount
of property subject to road tax the
supervisor of a road district makes
out a alphabetical list of all persons
subject to a poll tax, or owning
property in his district, and sends
it to the county clerk, and the latter
sets the valuation of property owned
in that road district opposite each
owner's name and returns the list
to the supervisor. The supervisor
then proceeds to assess the tax
against the property.
The history of tariffs shows that
when they are prohibitory, or ap
proximately so, tetaliation generally
follows on the part of the country
whose products are excluded. The
Dingley bill proposes to shut out
many articles which Europe could
send us, and if Europe retaliates we
will get the worst of it. For in
stance, it England were to meet
our high duties 011 imports by lay
ing high duties on our meat and
breadstuffs and cotton and draw
her supplies ftora India and Egypt,
there would be even a far worse
condition of affairs than under free
trade. It is not likely that England
will take such action, but It is well
to consider even remote possibili
ties. Our agricultural products
make up eighty per cent, of our
exports. While the McKinley law
was in effect .we had grievance
about our pork in the German and
French markets. Severe trade
restrictions from whatever cause
are injurious to all concerned.
Walla Walla Statesman.
Again word comes from President
McKinley that officeholders under
the Harrison administration need
expect no favors from this. It is
said that this fiat has gone forth,
not on account of any feeling what
ever against the Harrison adminis
tration, but simply from the fact
that the president thinks that the
good things should be passed
around. This is good news' to a lot
of fellows who have been afraid of a
some one who previously held the
office to which they aspire, but it is
anything but cheering to the other
Every time the officers of the
battle ship Oregon get out that
silver punch bowl and set of goblets
belonging to it, they are expected
to think of the people of Oregon,
and what chumps they were to con
tribute several thousand dollars for
the purpose of buying it.
